Episode Summary

1) Tinisha grew up in a single-parent household where college wasn't the first thought. She decided that she wanted to go and found a way to do that. Computer Science was her ticket.

2) She was used to being the "first and only" in her classes as is the story of many young, minority students in advanced and STEM courses.

3) She believes that having or feeling a sense of belonging is key towards retaining and keeping minority talent in the STEM pipeline. 

4) She and her partners at Primary Talent Partners are working the entire STEM pipeline to ensure that minority students have the access, abilities, opportunities, and support for STEM.

5) She really believes in paying it forward.
